16 A+ College Street-Style Snaps

Without an HR department, a school principal, or — remember this? — your parents around to harsh your outfits, it would make sense that college campuses would be the bastion of great personal style. However, students still have that hard-fought reputation of being some of the laziest dressers on the planet. Still, for every coed rolling to class in sweats, flip-flops, and last night's mascara, there's another who takes full advantage of the chance to express her individuality. We hit the campus streets to seek out the sartorial A-students who give college style a good name.
